Netizens laud Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto after guesting in Alex Gonzaga’s vlog

For Vico politicians do not have the right to place their images in every projects because the funds came from the people’s taxes.

Pasig City is indeed fortunate to have a mayor like Vico Sotto as he is currently being looked up to as an ideal leader our country needs.

In her latest vlog, Alex Gonzaga featured Sotto who remained consistent in avoiding publicity like putting his face on tarpaulins or other projects. He believes that politicians do not have the right of placing their images in their projects because the funds came from the people’s taxes.

“Hindi ako mahilig sa mga picture ko

“Atsaka, pag project ng LGU, bawal maglagay ng malaking pangalan ko. Bawal ‘yun. Kasi pera ng taumbayan iyon, e. Bakit ako maglalagay ng pangalan ko?” he said.

Sotto also cleared that the public should not have a debt of gratitude to the politicians once projects are accomplished. Tho, we can be thankful and grateful for good projects they’ve been doing.

“Ang ibig ko lang sabihin, wala tayong utang na loob sa mga politiko. Puwede tayo magpasalamat na, ‘Maganda ‘yung proyekto, maganda ‘yung programa.’ Pero wala tayong utang na loob. Iba ‘yun.” Vico said.

With this, Mayor Vico again gained admiration from the netizens.

Kabataan party-list representative Sarah Elago tweets and agrees with Vico’s stand against putting politician’s faces on their project posters.

PBB Alumnus Justin Dizon believes that Vico is someone who must be idolized by the youth.

@ICHAEG0 tweets that “public service should be bare minimum for politicians” and that this is just want Sotto is doing and should not be praised solely for doing his job.

Netizen @markizophrenia said, “the kind of consistency we need… we need more Mayor Vico Sotto in the years ahead.”

Since winning against former Pasig Mayor Eusebio and ending his almost 30-year political dynasty, Sotto has been consistent with his policies. In 2019, Sotto right after his Mayoralty win, tarpaulins and posters congratulating his win and greeting him on his birthday with his face were seen posted all over the city. Vico initially thanked his constituent but asked them not to do it again in the future.

Recently, Vico was also praised for not taking credit for the scholarship program offered by the city of Pasig.

Sotto also reminded the scholars that they should not be indebted to the politicians because they are using the taxpayer’s money. Vico then advised them to do well in their studies so that the city’s investment will be worth it.

In terms of COVID-19 response, Pasig City is also ahead of other cities in the countries. In fact, they are the first city in the Philippines to have an approved vaccination plan.

As of writing, Gonzaga’s vlog entitled, “A Day with Mayor Vico” already garnered more than four million views on YouTube.
